Thoughts of Perry Georgia bring to mind southern charm, friendly people, and small town living with city conveniences. Here’s a peek at what Perry GA has to offer…
Originally, settlers grew and cultivated cotton on the city’s rich soils, but grains, peaches, peanuts, and pecans have also flourished in the area. Perry was also home to some of the earliest industries such as the cotton gin.
Although, Perry GA was industrious, the residents have always maintained beautifully landscaped residential areas, and were awarded the Championship Home Town contest in 1948.
Today Perry boasts a population over 10K and is known by many as the “Crossroads of Georgia” because of it’s proximity to several highways.
Residents enjoy the Dogwood Festival every year in dedication of the city’s beautiful historic areas. The annual event draws huge crowds and vendors from around the state.
Perry Georgia has been the home to The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter (GNFA) since the late 1980s, and is the site of the annual Georgia National Fair.
The Georgia National Fair runs for eleven straight days starting on the fifth Thursday after Labor Day.
The GNFA is used during the year for ceremonies, meetings, various equine & livestock events, concerts, sporting events, and much more.
